The ambiance was mediocre, almost cafeteria feeling. the food was "ok" nothing to brag about, but not awful. all in all, not a bad place, just care for it enough to return.

This is a nice privately owned restaurant that is probably overlooked by most local residents in a town that is overpopulated with chain restaurants. I am a local resident who just recently discoverd Bills'. The menu has an enticing variety of entrees from seafood to steak reasonably priced.Wine list is limited but decent. Recently dined there with 5 family members... More

The standards on the menu are always good - but go for the specials...they really are special...not pantry sweepings. If you luck into being there for Bill's skate wings or spinach salad with fried chicken livers, you'll be very happy.

The waitstaff is friendly, knowledgable about the menu and happy to pour a taste of a featured wine, ahead of ordering. We have eaten there several times and never been disappointed. On our last visit, our table... More

Have eaten at Bill's Restaurant about 5 times. It's hit or miss in terms of the food. One meal may but be good and the next may be something you could have ordered at Applebees for one-third the price.

I looked at Bill`s when I pulled up and thought I was going to an old movie theater. When I walked in, I was in another world. The ladies were so friendly, you get that, " it`s all about you feeling". The appealing feel to this place was amazing. Bill came out and greeted folks, it was short quick greet... More

Being a hometown girl, I was brought up on the great food we have here in Owensboro - and Bill's is no exception! We enjoyed a fabulous meal with excellent service! The wine list was just fantastic and the food choices are like none other anywhere around here! Give Bill's a try for a unique dining experience!

The staff was nice and very professional. The food was excellent. Nice presentation. Good portions. Well prepared. I've not gone enough to settle on any favorite dish or desert. I was disappointed with the wine I selected but thats probably my fault. I would eat there more often but I seem to be crunched for time (It takes a while... More

My wife visited here on a recent Friday night. From the excellent menu choices to the special wine selections, my wife and I could not believe a restaurant of this quality could be in a city of 50000. The fish was prepared to perfection as was our service. A real jewel for a special occasion in fine dining experience.
